    Hi All,

    I have spent days of weeks looking through threads to help me fix my Bold 9900. I inherited the one year old phone and within days of owing it, did a software update, not knowing that the previous owner, who never had a single issue with the phone, had never done any software updates. It ran all night and since then I have a single flash followed by 3 quick flashes of the red LED. I have tried many things but always seem to get stuck in any suggested tries by the fact that the device cannot be detected when plugged in. I have tried this with both a Mac and a PC and cannot get it to be recognized.

    I will keep looking and reading but if someone can address this specifically, I will be forever in your debt!

    Something happened during the update... I'm sure you did a backup before starting.

    Thanks for your reply - I have gone through many, many, many pages of the thread you suggest, so far that it has left my issue along the way. I did the commands in dos and the AppLoader Wizard started but there is no detection at all of my device. This is as far as I've been able to get. I just ca't get recognized! I have not had any battery issues, the phone was working great, but the update seems to have ruined it.

    Recovering Your Dead/Nuked BlackBerry (after all other methods have failed)

    This is another one that deals with trying to recover a nuked BlackBerry.... but it is possible that you now own a paperweight.

    Sometimes trying another computer or USB cable is a good idea.
